8. Chapter 8


I buy a bit of everything. Jeans, shirts, skirts, leather jackets, shoes, and accessories before meeting up with Will and Al. I walk around the tattoo parlor, until I notice Tori and I go over to her. "Remember me, right? I was...I was just wondering if you could..." I was saying but she cuts  me off, "No I just do tattoos" Tori tells me. I nod my head and walk away, grabbing three tattoo stencils and coming back over to Tori, "I'd like these three. Please" I say. 

Tori finished of my first two tattoos, before starting on my third one. The first one was the Dauntless symbol and I had it on my left shoulder blade, the second was a dream catcher on the outside of my right thigh, and the third is a feather that breaks of into birds at the end, and I'm getting it just under my right collar bone. "Can I ask you...?" I trail off, "You made a mistake choosing Dauntless. They'll find out about you" Tori tells me as she starts my third tattoo. "Who? Who will?" I ask her, "People you're a threat to" he says, "What people? The Dauntless?" I question. "The whole society. If you don;t fit into a category, they can't control you" she informs me, "I don't get it. I'm Dauntless. I'm going to be Dauntless, I chose Dauntless" I tell her, "For your sake, I hope so" she says. A few minutes later, Tori finishes off my tattoo and I meet up with everyone. We show each other our tattoos before going back to base.

The next morning, I wake up early than everyone else to get more practice in. I change into a black tank top and black sports pants, I grab my shoes and run into the Pit. Before I start training, I tie my hair up and place my boots on. As I practice on the punching bag, I notice Four walking past. I continue to punch and kick the bag as I watch Four slow down to watch me, he nods his head at me and I smile at him. I slowly gain speed until the bag swings around and slams into me, I rub my arm from the pain and look down at my hands, to see that they were bloody and red. I wash them clean and take a drink from my bottle just as the others make their way into the Pit. Today we were shooting again. I grab a gun and aim it at the dummy, I manage to hit it twice in the stomach and once in the head. I walk past the board to see Tris now on 26 and I'm on 20, I smile to myself as I made it above the red line.

I was practicing on a punching bag again when Four stands to the side of me, "You're weak. You have no muscle. You're never gonna win, not like that" he tells me, "That's good to know" I say. "Yep, you have to use your whole body. Keep the tension here" Four says as he touches my midriff, I stop what I'm doing and look at him, "Okay" I whisper. Four keeps his hand there, "Go on offense. You're fast, so you could win if you attack first" he informs me and I nod my head, to weak to speak. Four moves his hand to my hip, leaving a trail of fire from where he touches. "You get into the side, you jab 'em in the throat" he informs me, I look him in the eyes as someone calls his name. "Keep working" he tells me before squeezing my hip and walking away, I watch him leave and smile to myself before turning back to the bag.

As I was about to hit the bag, I hear the sound of grunts. I turn around to see Christina fighting in the ring with Molly and was getting badly beaten up, I walk over there and stand beside Tris. "Come on, Chris" Tris mumbles, as we watch our friend. Molly goes to kick Christina but she holds her hand up, "No. No. I'm done. I'm done" Chris says, "You need to stop?" Eric asks her and Chris nods her head. "Okay. Let me give you a hand" Eric says and offers her his hand, Christina takes it and he helps her up, "Thanks" she mumbles. "Alright, let's everyone take a break!" Eric shouts and everyone stops what they were doing. Eric leads us with Christina walking beside him, I watch carefully as I notice Eric places his hand on Christina's back. "You, feeling a little better?" Eric asks her, "Yeah, I'm fine" Chris tells him. Eric leads us onto the bridge that stands over a chasm, suddenly he pushes Christina off but manages to hold her hand, letting her dangle over the edge of the bridge. "Grab the rail, or don't" Eric tells her and she does, "You got three options. Hang there and I'll forget your cowardice, fall and die, or give up. But if you give up you're out" Eric tells her as she hangs there for dear life. "Come on, Chris" I encourage her as Eric times her. Eric glares at me before watching Christina as she struggles to hang on, I watch as her hands start to slip off. "Time!" Eric shouts and I rush forward with Tris as we help her up, back onto the bridge. Chris collapses in my arms as Tris rubs her back, "Dauntless never give up" Eric tells us before walking off.
